Get urban
Mr Shef Codes, the Dubai-based, award-winning DJ known for his eclectic sets of hip-hop, R ‘n’ B and electronica tracks, is heading to Crystal for an exclusive urban night. Resident DJ Crazy D will be on the decks to warm things up, before Codes takes it Old School.
Reservations and guest list only. Tuesday January 26, from 10pm. Crystal Lounge & Club, W Doha Hotel & Residences (4453 5135).

Qatar Masters
Golfing legends like Ernie Els, Henrik Stenson and Robert Karlsson will descend on Doha at the end of the month to compete for a US$2.5million prize fund at the biggest golfing event of the year. But don’t be fooled into thinking this is an event reserved for serious golfing enthusiasts; in among the hushed tee-offs and tense putts are fun family driving range shows and family zones, plus a live performance from Scottish pop-rock band Simple Minds (more on p.69).
Tickets from QAR150 (general admission), free for children under 14. January 27-30. Doha Golf Club, West Bay,
